Ingredients

1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
2 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and black pepper

Turn chicken; brush with lemon juice mixture. Grill 5 to 7 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Transfer chicken to carving board; cut each breast in half.
